Re: British 1908 Webbing

Not from the UK, but excellent quality & a very good price too!

Delivery was quick with a written down value that helped the duty.

As good if not better than most others currently available.

Re: Source for good quality WW1 Nurses Uniform?

Thanks for all suggestions, they are all appreciated.

Dixie,

I was going to ask Ailsa next time I saw her, but was hoping to get something sorted before next year for my Mrs. I'll get Adam to drop her a line via facebook as I don't do it.

Source for good quality WW1 Nurses Uniform?

Can anyone suggest a supplier of a decent quality WW1 Nurses uniform?

I have seen a couple of suppliers on ebay etc. But their products are far closer to the fancy dress end of the market than a decent quality re-enactor item.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Re: Help with WWI equipment please

Re: Looking For WW1 type Ammo boots

I'm not that far from Brid & could definitely take a trip over there. Can you give me some idea as to where this fellow is? I will get round to getting some Lennon's sooner or later, but having just spent nearly 2 grand kitting my lad out in his WW1 stuff, I am having to explore more "econo...

Re: Looking For WW1 type Ammo boots

Unfortunately the £179.00 price tag is a bit above my budget at the moment.

I'm having to look for a more "budget" alternative.

Thanks anyway,

Re: Sewing Children into Clothes 19th/20th C

My mother was a teacher in an inner city infants / Junior school in Leeds in the 1960's & although this was not common it was certainly a practice that she saw on many occasions.
